comment How to scroll the terminal emulator window in smaller steps using the keyboard?
Indeed, Left Ctrl + Left/Right Shift + Up/Down does the trick! (It doesn't work for me with Right Ctrl.)

@slotishtype: Again, I would like to archive a directory (see my original example).

comment How to omit the “.” directory when creating a tar from directory?
@slotishtype: You are getting closer to my original example :) The question is how to archive a whole directory rather than separate files (and not having the . directory in the resulted tar) ?

comment How to omit the “.” directory when creating a tar from directory?
The problem with your suggestion is that the created tar contains all the directories, i.e. home->misha->path->to->directory->to->backup, rather than just the files themselves. How could I enforce not to create this directory structure ?

comment How to omit the “.” directory when creating a tar from directory?
I'm not interested in making the tar in the current directory. I would like it to be in /home/misha/path/to/tar (and I prefer not to cd to this directory, if possible).
